The False Allure of Security Technologies

The author examines the relationship between the security industry and public and private institutions in his article on the false allure of security technologies. This original study explores federal support and corporate strategies that encourage the use of security technologies in nearly all private and public places. The article focuses on security installations in schools, but it also offers a framework for understanding how the use of security technologies in all facets of life (at work, in recreation areas, in government and corporate buildings, and in public spaces) undermines civil rights and personal privacy.
